Password Managers

Passwords are an inescapable part of internet life, whether you’re shopping, checking email or on Facebook. They’re the unsung heroes of our privacy online, the last digital barrier that stops others from accessing our personal and financial data.

We have a lot of them to remember – according to research, the average person has 27 passwords to remember. That’s a lot to juggle. And they can be a hassle to reset. This is where password managers come in. They take away the guesswork of inputting your passwords online, and alleviate the stress of getting it wrong and having to jump through security hoops every time you want to log into a site. They do all the hard work for you. In fact you won’t need to remember any passwords ever again – a password manager will handle that for you, and you can rest safe in the knowledge that your details are well protected.

They can also work across multiple devices, so whether you’re on your laptop, tablet or phone, you’ll be covered.
